It is in:

/usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/mail/lib/lang

and ..

/var/www/ispconfig/mail/lib/lang

I think that any changes you make in the first (/usr/local/ispconfig) folder are designed to flow through to the interface located in /var/www

The location of the welcome message has chnaged in 3.0.4 as the messages are sent now by the server plugin and not the interface. The text is in the file(s) in

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/mail/

You should place your modified copy of the file(s) in the folder:

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/mail/

so that they dont get ovewritten on updates.

I have edited the file in conf-custom and the change is reflected, but a from-address is prefixed(added) from nowhere in the from address

like om@server1.mydomain.tld:mydomain

I have added the bold text only and underlined text is not needed and I couldn't locate the source of the same and i have never added this id anywhere like om@server1.....

please help.

No. This would not make much sense anyway as the user will not be able to read this email without knowing the username and password.

I don't want to place the username & password for the email, but for the CP - control panel for the client.
But it's ok, if it's not possible.

Please also help me find from where I am getting that additional text in the from address field as stated in my earlier post.

The email address is from the first line of the welcome email file. Please post the exact content of the welcome email file that you created.

Thanks for the info Till!

But non English custom files in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf-custom/mail are not working. After create new mailbox, welcome email is only in English, no matter the cp user language or custom welcome_email_xx.txt in that language. Can anyone confirm this?

Cheers
